As part of our Match Smarter series sponsored by Doximity’s Residency Navigator, Jonathan Rasouli, a neurosurgery resident at Mount Sinai, discusses his specialty. We also dissect some Open Osmosis neuro practice questions.

The QOD(s)

Our questions for today come from the Osmosis question bank and focus on a super high yield neurosurgery-related topic epidural vs. subdural hematoma. We cover the info likely to show up on boards exams from all levels of the USMLE and COMLEX to the neurology or emergency medicine shelf exams.

The Interview

Our Guest today is Jonathan Rasouli. Dr. Rasouli went to med school at Albert Einstein and is currently a fifth year neurosurgery resident at Mt. Sinai. He offers some useful, friendly advice on applying to neurosurgery residency, which, after all “isn’t brain surgery.” (Sorry. I had to).  Check out his Doximity profile.
